THE GREAT LANGUAGE GAME

  1. I'm loving the closed captions trying their best to make sense of what they are captioning! I watch a lot of subtitled films and series and even though I don't speak anything other than English sometimes I question what they are translating. Frequently in period dramas they use modern terminology such as in a 20's series they used the term Ms when I know it was not around until the 60's or later. In the case of some films where there is a little English sprinkled in I see they are not always putting what they are saying.

  2. I have to confess that, although I consider myself a fairly advanced learner of Norwegian, I got the first Danish one wrong. I thought it was a dialect of Norwegian, as I understood it reasonably well. Normally, as with the later Danish one, I only catch a few words.
    Otherwise, I was pretty much on a par with you there.

  3. For the language on the min 10.00' there is a tiny hint in the record, they say the word "uzbekistan" as well :-p

  4. Whoever makes these tests is probably has brain and cultural problems. How you gonna include all these ‘DIALECTS’ not even offical or big languages and leave out great languages such as persian Greek egyptian? #souninteresting

  5. I got three wrong. Ossetian is an Iranian language spoken on the northern slopes of the Caucasus Mountains. It's related to and may be a direct descendant of the Scythian, Sarmatian, and Alanic languages. Interestingly enough, given the simplification that has characterized most descendants of Proto-Indo-European, Ossetian has eight or nine noun cases (the existence of a ninth is debatable.)

  6. Game is no longer available… I got 30 on lingyourlanguage (5 correct guesses out of 8) and 3 of the samples were French haha

  7. That game is no longer available. Too bad. It looks like it was a lot of fun.
    By the way, you shouldn't take advice from a dog.

  8. I was pretty excited upon seeing many choices saying ‘Chinese,Wu’, because I’m a Wu speaker. But ended up hearing none of it:( maybe I will try to do this myself one day, and listen what the samples say.

  9. I don't know a lot of languages but I did about as well as you on this game — I'm a good guesser. I've got pattern recognition up the wazoo…

  10. 5:45 9:20 14:05 Failed in those, otherwise I was correct, yay!

    Didn't know Ossetic either, but I too guessed on that one. Mainly because I thought it sounded like both Arabic and Russian, yet none of them. And I knew it wasn't one of the others. What a fun game!

  11. There were two Norwegian samples. I'm from Norway, so that's my mother tongue, and what I can say, is that the two Norwegian samples sounded quite a bit different from each other because different dialects were spoken.

  12. I got a lot of these right from being a choir kid 😂 I’ve sung in so many languages that I recognize some of the sounds. I only speak English and Spanish, though.

  13. Really enjoying your channel, which I only discovered about a week ago. Informative, humorous, and with humility! Thanks/merci/obrigada/blagodarya!

  14. Well done! 😀 I chose at least half of them quickly, mostly because there were a number of choices. If it was without that support, I'd get a lot less, 5 or so.

  21. for me was really funny and enjoyable you didn't recognise Russian (1st time), when it was the sample with classical accent, but you recognised Ukrainian, while this sample provided one of the Western Ukrainian dialects.
    Anyway, congratulations!
